An ever-increasing number of colleges and universities around the country are making major commitments to prepare their graduates for successful careers in professional sales. What started as just a few universities offering credit hours for a basic “Introduction To Sales” class has evolved into comprehensive degree programs, certifications, or complimentary degree programs that are attracting companies of all sizes to ‘mine for gold’ at the academic level for high quality, disciplined, and laser-focused entry-level salespeople.
At Learning Outsource Group, we have been involved and committed to supporting a number of these universities for well over a decade. We were proud to receive a recent note of thanks from Dr. Dawn Deeter at Kansas State University (referenced below). She has been nationally recognized as a thought leader in developing sales education programs at the academic level and contributing to the success of the University Sales Center Alliance, Sales Education Foundation, and others.
“Learning Outsource Group’s dedication to professional sales education at the corporate and university level is exceptional!

The Cooperation SellingTM sales training model is a powerful resource to prepare our graduates for immediate success in their new careers.

Vanier Distinguished Chair of Relational Selling and Marketing Director, Kansas State University National Strategic Selling Institute Chair, Global Sales Science Institute
